Is the shift actuator part of the transmission control module?

Asked by Mar 16, 2016 at 06:30 PM about the 2013 Ford Focus SE Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

4 months after having the TCM (transmission control module) replaced our
car is having the same issues (shuddering, no start, stuck in gear, slipping
while in gear, high revving, etc)... We are being told that the problems are
being caused by the shift actuator and not the TCM and that it is not
covered under the warranty and will cost us $2500. Is the shift actuator part
of the TCM and can a bad one cause the above symptoms?

There are two shift actuator motors which are inside of the tcm which you say have already been replaced. The only other parts are the clutch motors which are outside of the TCM and they do not cost anywhere near $2500. Should be less than $900... Could an expert respond?

This sounds like it is a clutch actuator. I would ask for part numbers from the dealership to clarify.
